Bentley has just pushed the wraps off a convertible model of its entire new continental GT Grand Tourer. It is pretty much the similar ultra luxurious coupe, though, this sans roof.
It takes only 19 sec to raise or lower said roof (at speeds of up to fifty KPH) that folds under a small compartment behind the cabin, purchasers can pick to spec their cloth roof in one of 7 shades, including a rather tweed finish.
There’s a reason entire cars do not come in convertible versions; eliminating the peak of the car can present managing issues due to air friction (that is known as flexing in card trade). Do reduce on that, engineers rend to add further weight to the car’s chassis.
The exclusive GT convertible is no exception to that law, and it weighs more than 160-kgs more than its roof shades brother. Fortunately, that further weight has not put a damper on the car’s performance; it’s able of going from 0 to 100 KPH in just 3.7 seconds (which is just 0.1 seconds slower than hard top range) with a high speed of 333-kph.
Orders pick of the next year, but if you want one you would better start saving. Costs start at around $223,000 (which is about $30,000 more expensive than a usual GT).
The latest continental GT also showcase main evolutions in Bentley’s sole application of modern tech. A modern completely virtual, driver-focused tool panel and Bentley rotating screen for the driver among the suite of modern innovations. The later features an impressive 12.3 touch display housed in 3 side units, which revolves from clean veneer to reveal either a touch display or 3 gorgeous analog dials, offering clients the choice of virtual DETOX when wished.
Wonderful, sophisticated and refined, the entire new Continental GT is the pinnacle of open highly luxury grand touring.
